And they’re off
Hosted by the Historical Society, the “Minnow Races” made a debut at Pioneer Day on June 28. With the success of the event, the contest will also be held at Folkfest this weekend. One minnow may be purchased for $2 or 3 for $5. If the selected minnow/minnows win, the corresponding ticket goes into a 50/50 drawing. There will be four drawings held at Folkfest: 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Minnows were donated by E and J Bait Shop in Manistique.
